Laura said: "My little daughter just started choking and I put my fingers down her throat to loop it out there was just blue with the sick. I thought what on earth is this?

"I didn't even think it could be the chicken nugget but looked over at the box and all you could see was this blue coming out of another chicken nugget in the box of 20.

"And the mask is cooked into it, like a part of the mixture and it's clearly a mask. You can see the seam and how solid it is in there."

Laura said: "And the worst thing was that they carried on serving them. Before I left I said: 'Are you going to keep serving them?' And they were carrying on serving them and that was the big thing for me.

"I just couldn't believe the way the management were handling it. What if I had walked out of the room and my daughter had choked? She could have died. It's a split second thing.

"And I am just thinking, we have just come out of a pandemic and there is a face mask in my child's chicken nugget."
